Welcome! You've made it to the heart of Costa Rica.
Let us bring you on an expressive tour into one of the most beautiful and rejuvenating places on the planet; a paradise filled with a colorful array of flora and fauna, including dozens of varieties of brilliant hummingbirds and butterflies, where families of three-toed sloths, toucans, and monkeys frequent the rainforest canopy.
Many are aware of the invigorating sense of wellbeing that is felt when reconnecting with nature in Costa Rica. We now invite you to experience the power and tranquility of the Diamante Valley, which is located perfectly between the gorgeous beaches of Uvita and the conveniences of Pérez Zeledón. Here we begin our tour!
Upon arrival, behold the magnificent Tinamaste Ridge, a breathtaking wall of primary rainforest defining the valley's edge and path to our final destination. Throughout the meandering canyon, it is apparent how much the locals care for their community andenvironment, a thriving ecosystem where reforestation efforts have been greatly successful.
Continuing further into the valley, the next natural wonder is the Diamante Waterfall, falling 600 ft. from its source in the old-growth jungle. This awe-inspiring waterfall is the tallest in Central America. As the road winds to the West, we see the ocean's reflection from Manuel Antonio, a picturesque panorama that is truly unforgettable. Crossing pastoral vistas in the small pueblo of San Salvador, we now enter the Diamante Center, comprising 55 acres of lush rainforest, nestled right above the Nauyaca Waterfall and Rio Barucito.
Nauyaca is any nature lovers dream, enjoy a day's swim among the pristine natural swimming pools. Photograph the incredible views from atop this stunning waterfall, or turn towards the sun-speckled jungle behind you. Many say this magical place is one of the most beautiful in the country.
After refreshing yourself at the falls, please enjoy the inviting outdoor yoga deck, or wander the immersive trails crossing the sanctuary. These peaceful havens are some of many elements making the Diamante Center the perfect choice for anyone seeking to host wellness retreats, educational programs, or any variety of events.
As the evening approaches we make our way up to the majestic Ceiba tree, an exalted monument of the jungles and culture throughout Central America. Next to this powerful symbol of abundant health, we find the plaza, dining hall and kitchen, providing guests with the most delicious and gourmet nourishment imaginable. Enjoy fresh pure water from the local valley springs, or let us delight you with amazing tropical fruit smoothies. After an exceptional meal cooked by our chef's, we'll settle our energy and bring your day’s adventure to an end.
The Diamante Center offers flexible guest accommodations, including many stylish cabinas and multiple camping areas to connect with this special land. Welcome once again to the Diamante Valley.
